"The time is well overdue for a data-based cataloging of who 'out there' in the core of professional journalists is covering science-related topics, what their qualifications are, what motivates them, how they go about their jobs, an dhow they deal with everyday conflicts in their work. Environment Reporters in the 21st Century takes an admirable first step in that direction. . . . The authors are to be particularly commended for their research." --Garrett J. O'Keefe, Science Communication
